Got her a month back and changed a couple of things around.

Installed V&H competition pipes, changed the rear fender and modified the stock seat.

For the exhaust, she came with V&H widows but i wanted something louder. Installed the competition 2 into 1 and then remapped the fuelpak.

For the fender, I got a fender blank on eBay and then i cut the blank to what it looks now. i then powder coated the fender to flat black.

Now for the seat, i cut the stock seat and then got some vinyl fabric from Jo-Ann fabrics and recovered the seat.

Things that are on the to-do list are, change the handle bars to either sportster 48 or Iron bars and make a new passenger seat. Also during the winter when she takes some rest, i might paint the tins.

let me know what you guys think.

Looks good. I like the rear fender look. Never did like the big bulky night rod rear fender. If you still have your black widows I may be interested in them. Been thinking about playing around with some muffler combo's to see if I'd like alittle more "thunder". Shoot me a pm if you have them and interested in getting rid of them.

they came with the bike. i did not like them before but i started liking them now. i have a pretty clear view of the road behind me but the objects appear small since the mirrors are small.

Put a new light that i found on Ebay.

i did a little mod to the brackets so that it could fit and here is how it looks. i took some pictures in the garage so the lighting is not good. i will take some more pics next weekend.



as far as the mod to the bracket, i had to grind the two top corners and make two holes so that it fits in the place of the standard bracket.

i think it will look better than what it looks on my bike. i had a tight budget so air shocks were out for me.

Nice, i think I've seen it up at the dealership. Do you have a buddy that also has a modded NRS? I'm in St. Peters.
